My first time solo on a Laser.  I weighed about two feathers at the time and was 11 or 12 years old.  I persuaded one of my father's friends to let me borrow his near-new Laser (check out that low sail number).  Mid '70s Oakura Bay, Northland.

Maybe this one doesn't qualify but it is interesting.  Erehwon circa 1949.  My father was regular racing crew on Erewhon but took this photo from Inyala on which he cruised regularly (see the book "A Modern Sea Beggar" by Temple Utley available to read online).

That’s hard case and a cool pic . I would’ve been across the other side at puriri bay but in a micron . sh*t whangaruru was a cool place in the 70s and 80s especially when Seabee air dropped bread and milk at bland bay
